The regular season has come to an end but not before both side clinched a spot on the playoff brackets. The DII side was able to secure their spot and take the conference championship a couple weeks ago against the Omaha GOATS with a win of 13-10. The DIII squad would make it to the MRFU playoffs for the second year in a row and will be facing the Hornets on Saturday, May 2nd at Forest Park, kick off is at 2pm. The winner of the match will take on the winner of the first game, Royals vs Kohlfeld on Sunday.
Before this week’s playoff the DIII side had one more game last weekend against SMRFC. It rained the entire match and forced both teams to play hard close rugby to secure the ball. At the end of the first half the Bombers lead 12-5 and the intensity began to fall. The Bombers were able to score first in the second half but SMRFC would quickly follow with their own try keeping the game close. I don’t know if it was the weather, the last SMRFC try, or the side-line cheering “Let’s GO BOMBERS” but it seemed to light a fire under the Bomber’s squad. Both the intensity and offensive pressure would push the Bombers to a 45-12 win over SMRFC. I am hoping to see the same hard work and effort this weekend as the Bomber’s try and claim the MRFU Championship.
